Cycling through Clouds in Central Asia: iPad back; Today: 55 km; Total: 4435 km
July 20, 2014 Rice
and dried mushroom tastes awful even if it ’ s the only option on the menu for a lost
cyclist in Mongolia. We had to double back on the same sandy road we had pedaled
yesterday. On our way, we saw a local guy on a motorbike who drew on th...

Cycling through Clouds in Central Asia: Getting Lost; Today: 70 km; Total: 4380 km
July 19, 2014 It
rained all night. After having instant noodle and coffee in cold, we packed up
and left the camp. I was shivering with cold and my hands were frozen. We had a
3000-meter pass. From close to the pass, asphalt finished and we were riding on
a...

July 18, 2014 I woke up around
6, thinking about a way to get my iPad back. When I told Fausto about my idea
of getting a Jeep and going to Bulgan to get my iPad back, he said that it was

July 17, 2014   We woke up
early, had breakfast, and prepared to experience our first day in Mongolia. A

July, 16, 2014 At 9 am, I went
downstairs to see if it were my cyber lucky day — no Sir. Then, unlike other days, we could sense some hustle and bustle
in the hotel. Rumor had it that the Mongolian border was open. In half hour, we
were ready to evacuate Ch...

  July 14-15, 2014 Having very
little money left for food or possible stay in a hotel if we had to, we had no
choice but to push it to the border which was 145 km again in the desert. We

Cycling through Clouds in Central Asia: Longest Ride; Today: 215 km; Total: 3830 km
July 13, 2014 At 7 am China
time (5 am real time), we were on the lonely, desert road. There was no wind at
the beginning, so we were doing fast. The only thing ahead, according to the
map, was a short side road meeting this road 90 km away, where we expect...

July 12, 2014 After struggling
with diarrhea all night, I woke up to feel hungry, which was a very good sign.
We went to the restaurant of the hotel and ate as much as we could. I was
hungry alright, but I could eat not very much. We started at
9:15 in some...
